Just a note.

I don't know if any of you are having a worse-than-usual problem with spam, but with my last few fics, I've been getting tons of messages and going back to delete 20+ comments is a pain in the ass. I have contacted LJ for support about the problem, but the only solution that has been reached is that I need to turn off anonymous comments again. I hate to do that because I know there are readers who either don't have an account or prefer to remain anonymous in reviews. Unfortunately, though, this spam issue has become too annoying and I'm tired of dealing with it. I've tried turning it off before and the comments did stop when I turned it back on, but with the new fic I posted recently, those comments have started up again.

I may turn it back on eventually. I'd like to. I just need this spam issue to stop. If I get one more message for viagra, I'm going to lose it.

Not to sound too, too moronic, but why would people who actually have LJ accounts need to review anonymously? That is to say, unless they are writing something that they would be ashamed to put their name on, what other reason would they have to not comment like I am doing right now? (And, of course, if you have an actual response, I will then look stupid. But I am perfectly willing to look that way.)

I've been on a long term Kurtbastian kick, but I still (lovingly) recall your Puckurt stories and had no problem telling you so using my name. I'm just at a loss as to why others find it hard to do the same...

Some people just prefer to be more private about stuff. Either because they're not comfortable or they might just be that shy. Personally, I'm shameless, so I don't fully understand it myself, but some people are more reserved, so to each their own, I guess. Haha.

I guess I can understand up to a point. Like when I decided to try and read my first Kurofsky fic, I was totally conflicted b'c of how the character was first brought onto the show and what it might represent to read something that would pair Kurt and Dave together (even tho it is, but of course, fiction). However, if I was going to actually read the fic AND comment on it (b'c I don't actually have to comment -- I can pretend to have never seen the story in my life) -- but if I am going to comment on the fic, then I'm going to put my name on the comment b'c otherwise, I'd just feel ridiculous making any kind of statement at all.

I guess my point is if someone has something to say, I'd think they'd want to stand by their words.

But different strokes, etc...

(I'm shy in certain circumstances -- but speaking up in forums, whether in print or in person, is not one of them.) It's a gift and a curse... (Yes, I'm quoting Monk.)
